 Peter Pan & Cinderella Wentworth jigsaws

Peter Pan & Cinderella Wentworth jigsaws

As you will soon discover as this blog grows, I absolutely love things that are a bit unique, different, creative, lovingly handcrafted or well made by small individual companies. I also love it when these things come as thoughtfully selected surprise treasures that someone else has found for me. So when we opened these jigsaws last Christmas morning, I was absolutely delighted and extremely impressed! I have loved doing jigsaws since I was a little girl and these are the best ones I've ever seen - that is saying something! They are precision laser cut pieces that are all different irregular shapes, with the added feature of having a series of "whimsy" pieces that suit each jigsaw - which the girls unsurprisingly loved picking out. I knew they would no doubt become firm favourites in our house...

These two jigsaws were bought for us by Simon's Mum, who got them as a set of 4. We received two and his brother's family (also 2 gorgeous girls) got the others. They came with one pre-cut board, but she very cleverly had her neighbour make a matching one so that there would be no arguments and the girls could do them at the same time - what a resourceful and fabulously thoughtful Grandma!

In the time we've had these we've done them countless times and the girls are doing them again now as I type - I'm sure we will enjoy them for years to come. We'd love to get some more, so perhaps we shall drop a little hint to Grandma to send the other two for Christmas this year... I have been on the Wentworth website and they have a whole series of gorgeous ones that would make perfect gifts if you are looking for something that is great quality, timeless, fun to do for all ages and just a little bit different.

Have you seen these before? Do you have any surprisingly lovely gift ideas you'd recommend?

Happy puzzling,
